Watch Janowicz's epic on-court meltdown

Jerzy Janowicz has the dubious honour of being the first player to throw an on-court tantrum at the 2013 Australian Open after this epic meltdown on Wednesday.

Janowicz, seeded 24th in the men's singles, lost his composure in a big way after a line-ball call in the middle of a first-set tiebreak against India's Somdev Devvarman.

The line judge called Devvarman's forehand in, levelling the tiebreak at 9-9, when Janowicz exploded.

The second-round match was being played on court eight and therefore did not have Hawkeye facilities. The Pole screamed, "How many times?" and collapsed to his knees before unsuccessfully begging the judge to overturn the call.

The distraction evidently affected Janowicz's game as he lost the tiebreak and the second set, before recovering to defeat Devvarman 6-7 (10-12) 3-6 6-1 6-0 7-5.

He faces 10th-seeded Spaniard Nicolas Almagro in the third round.
